FIVE LITTLE PIGS (1942) 4.5/8 Yes Crime/Murder Mystery Rs.100 (Amazon.in) Agatha Christie

A little nursery rhyme is what FIVE LITTLE PIGS is but here we are talking about a crime murder mystery novel of the same name written by the famous AGATHA CHRISTIE. This novel was also published by the name MURDER IN RETROSPECT and have 3.94 avg rating (out of 21989) and falls at #24 of Hercule Poirot series of AC. This book was first published in May 1942.

It took me 336pgs and 66 days to completed this novel, and it was a good book, though I will not put it in high regards if compare with others I have read of her. The story goes like- A lady approach Hercule Poirot to find out the truth of a murder mystery happened 20 years back, in which her mother was given the verdict and proved guilty but she guess it is not her mother who killed her father but could be someone else, and so Poirot recaptures the artifacts and find out the truth. 

This mystery does a lot of talking, obviously its required for reconstruction of an old crime, hence made the book somewhat boring. But Chritie lovers can obviously read this one. The book is divided over parts wherein one part includes letters which Poirot ask every character to write, write like a memoir of the incident recapturing their thoughts, and by reading them and talking to them separately gave him the idea about the original murderer. This concept was different though. I rate 4.5/8.
